Salary: $40,000-50,000 US dollars
Contract term: Fixed Term

We are seeking to appoint suitably qualified Early Years class teachers to join our dedicated team on our Kindergarten site from August 2019.

Candidates must be a native-level English speaker and will be required to teach children between the ages of 2 years - 6 years. Candidates will be required to register as an overseas teacher working in China and will ideally meet the qualification requirements of a B.A / B.Ed in Early Years Education, a PGCE/PGDE or educational qualifications at a similar or higher level.

The safety and well-being of our students is of paramount importance and candidates must have appropriate criminal records clearance and be willing to undergo child protection screenings, equivalent to UK disclosure practices.

Experience working with children who are learning English as a second language will be a significant advantage as the majority of children in our school are EAL learners. The position will involve working in a classroom with young children and teachers are also supported by a bilingual teaching assistant as well as a Chinese helper. The Kindergarten follows the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and is an IB school, therefore experience working with the PYP will also be an advantage. The Kindergarten values staff who are flexible and willing to support an inquiry-based, collaborative curriculum.

Successful applicants will be employed on a 2-year contract, which is renewable by mutual agreement. The package includes:

- Competitive salary based on experience and responsibilities

- One annual return flight

- Health insurance

- Accommodation allowance

- End of Contract gratuity/bonus

- Work Permit and Visa

Candidates interested in the post should submit a letter of application and a CV addressed to the School Principal, Simon Massey - simon.massey@tgisgz.com. Candidates must include two professional referees, including your current Headteacher/Principal or supervisor if applicable. Please note the school will only contact referees upon your successful application and will notify you in advance.

Interviews will take place in December/January via Skype or Facetime, though the school reserves the right to interview ahead of these dates, therefore early applications are advantageous. Please note only short-listed candidates will be contacted. The closing date for applications is Thursday 20th December 2018.

Further details of our school can also be found on our website www.tgisgz.com
